The toilet seat has a metal bolt and a plastic nut. The nut is frozen from the rusty bolt onto the metal bolt.

The toilet is next to a wall so you can't get oil on top of the plastic bolt -- because it's sitting up against the bottom of the toilet.

The sawzall might be needed to cut through the metal bolt. If we can.

Husband is at work (the sawzall was my son's idea).

We've already tried vice grips and a big screw driver. But screw spins in the same direction as the plastic thing. It shouldn't be this fucking hard!

The other side is off. It's just the side closest to the wall.

Toilet seat bolt + sawzall = Gasp

Please be careful!

1. wear heavy work gloves
2. use a metal bit (many tiny teeth)
3. don’t stand inside the bowl while sawzall is plugged in, wait until unplugged before standing inside bowl
4. post pics Yes

or...

Add some amaretto and angostura bitters and you've got yourself a Bloody Atrocity. My specialty.

I have those fixings. Smile.

I'm off to concoct. Then if the sawzall does come out I'll be numb and won't care.

Alcohol + Sawzall = Disaster Facepalm

Maybe heat it.

You have no idea how we've tried. Angry

I swear we're NEVER USIJG THAT TOILET AGAIN.

Unless I can figure out how to prevent this from ever happening again.

Are you kidding? I don't know how to work those things.

I can barely use a sewing machine.

Whiskey/bourbon on the bottom, layer the amaretto on the top. Shake the bitters on top that will settle through the amaretto.
